This is just my opinion and Im not looking to start a fight but Walker has the worst stripes on any mower on the market, the cut may be good but not the stripes the third wheel is horrible.

I can go both ways on the walker thing. I agree with you on the 3rd wheel thing but it does have a very nice cut. Im surprised that no one has rigged a striper to follow behind the 3rd wheel. Orhas anyone done such a thing already?

i hate the walkers. and no offence, but when someone thinks there stripes are nice from a walker... im sorry but there not. that 3rd wheel kills the picture.

And since were on the topic of sucky cuts. i dont like the exmark tthp. with the 4 anti scalp wheels i think ruins the cut

Your the first person Ive heard that doesnt like the TTHP I put the center two anti scalp wheels a couple hole's higher and you cant see them in the cut at all and I have not had any trouble with scalping I also have a striping kit on it. It leaves a very clean cut.
